wow. here's ahmed faried. >> ahmed fareed here from the xfinity sports desk. the warriors lost three games this year but offensively they have been elite once again. averaging more points per possession this year than last year when many argued they had the best offensive season in nba history. so they're even better this year, taking on the philadelphia 76ers. this was not good early on. steph curry takes a knee to the quad. he had to leave the game. he would come back. but we'll have to monitor that, see if he does miss any time. kevin durant did not miss many shots in the first half. 7 for 11 from the field including 2 for 2 from three land. he scored 20 points. the warriors led by one at the half. it was tied at 74 in the third quarter, but then the dubs went on a huge run. klay thompson for three. they were up seven. and then check out this pass from sean livingston. behind the back. klay again. warriors have won six straight. they go on to win 135-114.
>> second straight game where we had a ton of first half turnovers. and then it seems like things settled down. yeah, we want to put it together, obviously, for four quarters. but right now it seems like we're just kind of treading water for a while, then getting going on the second half. >> it's the ninth straight time that the warriors have beaten philly. they'll get a chance to make it ten straight this saturday. the two square off in philadelphia. that'll do it for sports. i'm ahmed fareed.
